The marijuana debates continues but did you know that you can enjoy all of the medicinal benefits of marijuana without getting high? Hemp-based CBD is legal in all 50 states and can be ordered online. Here’s what you need to know.
What Is Hemp-Based CBD?
Hemp is a species of the cannabis plant that has .3% or less of THC. THC is the component that gets you high, but THC is not responsible for any medicinal benefits. With the 2018 Farm Bill it is now legal for farmers to grow hemp, primarily for CBD products—but also for paper, non-dairy hemp protein, clothing, and more.
What Kind Of CBD Products Work?
While CBD products are new in the US they are not new around the globe. The legalization of hemp has opened the door for a long list of new CBD startups. You can find everything from:
- Relaxing bath bombs
- Antiaging skincare products
- Acne treatment
- Wound salves
- Cooking oil
- Oral tinctures
- Capsule supplements
- Topical gels for targeted pain relieve
- Vape products
- And more!
Without the worry of getting high people who have never considered marijuana are embracing CBD. While CBD is legal some universities, professional organizations and athletic programs prohibit use—so ensure you know the policies you have committed to.
